Gold Coast Vacation Rentals by Owner

The Gold Coast is a wonderful place for holiday fun. High-rises are built around superb surf beaches in this surfer’s paradise, making this one of Australia’s most glamorous cities. Owner Direct Vacation Rentals brings you a variety of lodging options in and around the Gold Coast, including condo rentals, vacation home rentals, cottages and more. Search the website today to find the perfect accommodations for your holiday.

94 km (58 mi) from the state capital of Brisbane, the Gold Coast is one of the most populous cities in Australia and much of it is focused in the bustling metropolitan area surrounded by world-renowned beaches. The Gold Coast has been a booming holiday destination for decades, thanks to the sunny subtropical climate, surfing beaches, canals, theme parks, and nightlife. The nearby hinterland rainforest is also a major attraction. Explore the waterfalls, lookouts and scenic bushwalks of the lush rainforest. Or, head into the heart of the city for shopping, art galleries, and the glitz and glamour of the bars, nightclubs and urban cultural events. The city consists of miles upon miles of coastline with some of the most popular surf breaks in the world, including South Stradbroke Island, The Spit, and Mermaid Beach, and is just across New South Wales state border from the infamous Duranbah Beach.

Owner Direct Vacation Rentals is a unique vacation rental "matching service" that makes finding the perfect holiday accommodations quick and easy. Perhaps a condo rental in the city suits your needs, or perhaps the whole gang is coming with you and more space is what you need. Whatever it is, Owner Direct Vacation Rentals has thousands of accommodation options to choose from. Vacation home rentals provide far greater value and convenient perks than hotels rooms, so why spend more and get less on your vacation with a hotel?
